Chicken legs always seem to go on sale. Only thing is, now that my kids are older, they prefer chicken breast. So I was trying to find a way to cook chicken legs, that would make the kids excited to eat them. I usually just season with garlic, salt and pepper and roast them in the oven. I thought I'd try making a glaze to bake them in.

This chicken was delicious! I loved how thick and sticky the glaze became, while baking in the oven. I basted the chicken legs every 10 minutes, while baking, to get them nice and coated. The kids really loved the sweetness of the chicken. Leftovers were super yummy, paired with Naan bread the following day. 

Caramelized Baked Chicken Legs

2 lbs chicken legs
1/4 C nut oil, or olive oil
1/3 C low sodium soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
1 Tbs grated fresh ginger
1/4 C ketchup
2/3 C raw honey
6 cloves garlic, minced
fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp salt
green onion tops, chopped (garnish)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken in a large baking dish and set aside.

In a bowl, combine the oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, ketchup, honey, garlic, pepper and salt. Pour mixture over the chicken legs, turning legs to coat evenly.

Bake for 50 minutes, to 1 hr, basting the chicken with the glaze every 10 minutes. Chicken should read 165 degrees F on an instant read thermometer, when inserted near the bone. Let rest 10 minutes and baste one last time with glaze, before transferring to a serving dish. Garnish with green onion tops.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.

When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??

This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
